We got to shoot Stephanie and Michael's big day on June 4th at the IAO Art Gallery in Oklahoma City. Stephanie was so fun to work with from the very beginning. She was just glowing and so happy all the time, and her love for Michael was obvious.
Stephanie and Michael met at a party with friends. They started talking and hanging out, and became best friends very fast. Stephanie says they fell in love with each others ambition and love for Michael's daughter, Haley. (Check her out in the video, she's so adorable!) Michael proposed by putting Stephanie's beautiful ring in her stocking on Christmas Morning in 2014.
When planning their special day, Stephanie and Michael envisioned a relaxed, romantic fun atmosphere that celebrated their true love. And FUN is definitely how we would describe her reception! Between the dancing, the photo booth, the pizza and the dessert bar, how could you not have the time of your life?
Stephanie's advice to other brides would be to relinquish control and delegate! And download the WeddingWire checklist EARLY! "Find a package. Don't pass those up! They may seem expensive, but DIY is a lot of work and it all adds up in the end."
Don't miss Hayley cutting it up on the dance floor in this video, that girl can DANCE! Also, the OKC ProAM bike race was happening on the day of their wedding, so look for the bikes in the background of a lot of their outside shots.
We adored capturing every moment of Stephanie and Michael's day, and we hope you love their video!
